In the depths of winter in Barossa Valley. It’s always cold and wet, but it usually never snows. On 12th July 2016 a sudden hail storm passed through Rowland Flat and surrounding towns leaving snow-like trails. This was nothing compared to the hail that fell exactly four years ago to the day in a bizarre coincidence. The freak hail storm in 2012 only affected a very narrow band of the Barossa Ranges including our property on Steingarten Road, Rowland Flat. It hailed so much in 2012, it really did look like snow!
We are always asked to provide tips for tourists and visitors to the Barossa. There is a great list featured in the winter issue of Barossa Living Magazine. It offers more to see and do than just activities for?vinophiles. You can?take friends and family a bit off the main tourist trail and show off areas of natural beauty with amazing lookouts, it also covers foodie and cultural hangouts.?We must thank the crew from Lyndoch Hill for the mention too!
